Kuruka maisha Foundation wishes to invite all for our long awaited Musical TUNARUKA TUKILALA on the 24th and 25th February 2012,live and exclusive at Oshwal Centre westlands Nairobi.
The show is the first grande acrobatic dance musical ever created to depict the story of street children in Nairobi. The stage production, entitled TUNARUKA TUKILALA, follows the lives of young men and women who end up living on our urban streets,have to survive there, and eventually find a way out. The show is performed by children and young adults who have experienced life on the streets firsthand but have been rehabilitated through the arts. Now, using their passion, talent, and skills, they share with us a spectacular story in which beauty triumphs over adversity.The Show also features as part of an ongoing Documetary film project Ni KURUKA MAISHA whose filming is already ongoing.
The Stage prodcution is writen by an American conceptual artist Yazmany Arboleda and directed Nick Balongo with an original score by acclaimed composer Nina Ogot.
The Foundation will also be using the event to launch its Education Fund to support identified street youths to continue with their Formal Education.40% of the proceeds from ticket sales will be channelled towards the Foundation Education programme.
The programme includes some of the most famous melodies from Italian operas revisited in glamorous instrumental transcriptions and fantasias that exalt the virtuosity and the communicative strength of the three soloists. They are among the best Italian performers of their respective instruments. Francesco di Rosa is currently the Lead Oboe of the Santa Cecilia Orchestra of Rome, after having been Lead Oboe for the Teatro alla Scala of Milan. Roberto Prosseda records numerous CD’s for decca and Deutsche Grammophone, and plays regularly as a soloist in the most prestigious Theatres such as Teatro alla Scala, Philharmonie of Berlin, Royal Festival Hall of London, the Gewandhaus of Leipzig and Suntory Hall of Tokyo.

About The Seasons:
Love at first sight – well, at first hearing! That was our reaction to Haydn’s last great work, The Seasons, composed in 1804, two years before his death. Written after his better-known oratorio Creation, The Seasons similarly and dazzlingly celebrates the gift of creation, this time by depicting the lives of villagers as they go through the annual round of rural life: sowing and planting, harvesting, the pleasures of rain and sunshine, of the grapes, of hunting, of fancies of love (and of outwitting an unwanted suitor!) and always praising God for His wonders.
The choral and orchestral writing is full of colour, subtlety and wit, as Haydn describes in music all sorts of events – raindrops, thunderstorms, sunrise, hunting scenes, the village dance and its noisy band. We hear frogs and birds and all sorts of creatures. There are magnificent fugues, dramatic choruses and tender lyrical ones also. The solos range from describing the scenes and people (the ploughman, the shepherd) to expressing inner emotions and thoughts. We are exceptionally fortunate to have superb soloists whose voices also work wonderfully well together in their trios and duets. Much of what is written for them is very operatic in style, reflecting Haydn’s extensive experience as an operatic composer.
The challenges of the work mean that these performances are the first in Kenya! We found it irresistible and hope you will also.
